Holiday Adopt-a-Family

Remember the excitement of waking up on Christmas morning to presents under the tree? Or maybe your fondest holiday memory is sharing a beautiful meal with your family gathered around a festively decorated table. For many of the families we see, the holidays are not a time of joy but a time of sadness and depression because they cannot provide gifts or a warm meal for their children. Each year, Our Lady of Grace Church, schools and businesses in East County partner with Crisis House to adopt needy families. They provide families with toys, clothing, food and other items they cannot afford to purchase themselves. If your family, business, church or organization would like to participate, please contact the Holiday Adopt-a-Family case manager at: 619-444-1194 ext. 312. Read more
